Dana Laubach, Olive Branch Natural Soap Company, LLC, Hohenwald, Tennessee 
Olive Branch Natural Soap Company, LLC, is a small, family-owned and operated bath and body business in the “hills and hollers” of middle Tennessee.
Their business began with the desire to get away from unhealthy chemicals and create all natural, plant-based soap products for their family and friends. It quickly evolved, by customer request, into a full line of all natural bath, body and home products, including soap bars, body butter, bath salts, sugar scrubs, lip butters, herbal insect repellent, herbal healing balm, joint and muscle rub, bath bombs, dryer balls and a line of natural products for baby and mom.
All of their products are handcrafted; in fact, each bar is hand-cut, and all of the labels are attached, one label at a time! High-quality fruit, vegetable and nut oils, such as olive, coconut, apricot, almond, avocado, shea butter, coco butter, grape seed and the like, serve as the base for all of their products containing oil. They use essential oils (only) for their scents, and all of their colors come from nature (plants, clays, spices, salts, etc). 
They carry a few bath and body sundries, including their wooden soap decks, which help prolong the life of your soap. These natural beauties are also handcrafted, with love, by Grandpa. They desire to inspire, educate and empower their clientele to become discerning consumers of products that compliment a more natural, healthy lifestyle.
